Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we do pride ourselves with great presentation and not being 'just another motel' Although we do not encourage smoking at our property we cannot stop people smoking and we do provide plenty of ashtrays. Have a wonderful day

Such friendly hosts who go the extra mile. Thank you for an amazing stay and also looking after us the next day when we had a late flight. After an amazing night of great food and wine and the beautiful spa room I was feeling slightly worse for wear, we went out for coffee and came back to our room...

Had a very enjoyable two night stay here a few weeks ago. Easy parking, very comfortable well appointed rooms and a few minutes walk to the town centre make it a great place to stay. It's also right on the doorstep of a multitude of Marlborough wineries. Heather was a star and attended to all of our needs, ably assisted...

I've travelled to blenheim for over 10years now and have always come back to stay at BPM. It's very clean - very comfortable, impeccably decorated - each room has its own individual theme which i love - the beds are just so comfortable ! CBD is less than 5mins walk ! The hosts are genuinely good people and always willing...

There's nothing out of the ordinary about this place, though it is perfectly pleasant and well apportioned, until you get to know who runs it. With her other half away in Wellington, I mean Heather. We were not there at an ordinary time. At 12.05 in the morning we were jolted out of sleep and bed by the earthquake that...

From the moment we made contact with Blenheim Palms, they were a dream to deal with. We were a large group booking, they understood out requirements and made the booking and reservation process seamless. Checking in after a long day late at night was easy - Heather has preallocated the rooms, and guests simply had to tell her their name...

We are a couple from Scotland and we have been traveling around New Zealand in a camper van for 3 weeks. We stayed one night at Blenheim palms.

This was a spacious and beautifully presented room. In addition to being spotless and modern, there were a great amount of towels, facecloths, tea/coffee sachets. Another nice touch was the decent sized cannister of coffee to use in the plunger. In the main room there was a beautiful bed, TV, decent sized sofa, small table and two chairs, plus a...
